Egypt issues ultimatum to Hamas, demands they halt flaming kites against Israel

The ultimatum followed Israel’s announcement Monday evening that it would close the Kerem Shalom crossing to gas and fuel supplies after Hamas launched a rocket into Israel earlier in the afternoon.

 Egypt issued a warning to Hamas to put a halt to the launching of flaming kites and balloons into Israel from Gaza, according to a report in Ynet.

The ultimatum followed Israel’s announcement Monday evening that it would close the Kerem Shalom crossing to gas and fuel supplies after Hamas launched a rocket into Israel earlier in the afternoon.

Multiple fires broke out throughout Monday along the Israeli border with Gaza, but the IDF reported that the numbers were less than previously recorded.
